Cowboys and Queens cabaret dinner and dance at the Old Ship Hotel on June 23, raises £300 for Rainbow Fund from raffle.

Following a first class three course steak dinner, Kara Van Park whipped the audience into life with some cowboy numbers including Oklahoma before line dancing instructors took to the floor, to put the line dancing virgins present, through their paces.

Most people attending had entered into the spirit of the evening, dressing mainly as cowboys with a few Queens for good measure. There were plenty of bare chests and legs on show, all adding to the glamour and excitment of the occasion.

Chris Gull, Chair of the Rainbow Fund, said: The Rainbow fund is delighted to receive the donation of ¬£300 raised from the raffle held during the Cowboys and Queens event recently.¬†This demonstrates, yet again, the vital role that we play in ensuring that funds raised by community events are distributed fairly, to support the local groups and organisations that support people from our LGBT+ and HIV communities. Our thanks to everyone involved.”
